    Seems bump stocks will be regulated or ban, in my opinion I see no use for it, ammo can by pricey at times and firing full auto means you are pissing away money, plus can't you bump fire without the stock anyway?

    What good would it do? If you put it on a 4473, he would have still gotten them. If you add them as NFA items, it's punishing everyone that bought one because of one bad courier.

    Well put. But I'm still skeptical of the whole thing, after intensive research I came into a conclusion this incident never happened. Maybe it was two kids shooting fireworks out of a hotel window.

    Besides Patsy has been busy touring with his band.

    It's illegal to modify a semi-auto to fire full auto, so I don't know how these got past the initial law.

    You guys are missing the point. The real question is: Why aren't more country clubs and concerts the scenery for mass shootings?

    Because they're not being modified, bump stock still requires one pull of the trigger per one round fired, which is what the law states

    For all the armchair gun experts here, bumpstocks are like binding the fire button to mouse wheel when using the G3 rifle in CoD 4. Still semi auto fire but faster but it is illegal in some servers.

    Without the right tax stamp and licenses it is illegal to modify a weapon to full auto. My statement was it was illegal to modify a semi to full auto. If a mechanical device is used to increase the rate of trigger pull, then yes it is still technically semi. However, if the rate is increased to that of almost a full auto as a bump-stock, therefore it would behave in a manner of a full automatic. (Violates the spirit of the law.)The trigger is depressed by the operator once and the cyclic action does the motions for him. I do not know if King Douche actually got the proper paperwork. It would appear the bump-stock was not legal if no additional paperwork was necessary. The NRA is calling for increased legislation for bump-stocks.

    The argument is whether or not should a citizen should be able to have a weapon which simulates a high rate of fire similar to full auto.

    Back to your armchair.

    A mechanical device is used to increase the number of triggerpulls due to the cyclic nature of the rifle. It's an extra mechanical device to reduce the number of steps in which to fire the rifle. A auto sear allows the rifle to cycle through mechanically. This is a mechanical device which overrides the single shot sear.

    You are entirely incorrect

    As far as the law is concerned, the "firearm" is just the lower receiver

    Unless you are modifying mechanical parts in the lower receiver then you are not breaking the law and you are not converting it in any way

    Except it's not full automatic because it's still one trigger pull at a time.

    In court lingo they call this a loophole

    a gun is a thing where you pull a trigger and a bullet comes out the end bit. a bum stock makes more bullets fall out of the barrel.

    Yes. A human can move tons of material in a single day with a shovel. Same with buckets or bags. Some 200 lbs (or kgs, doesn't matter) take only a few walks with large bags.

    The sear and the trigger mechanism are housed and attached to the lower receiver. Again, I said yes, technically it is not breaking the law, but breaking the spirit of the law. This argument is moot, bump-stocks are not popular and the NRA is seeking and supporting legislation to regulate them. Perhaps similar to full auto weapons.

    He could have fit all that shit in one dufflebag, and even if he couldn't, nobody is going to question a man walking to his hotel room.
